G&K Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: GK) has introduced a new scholarship program, called GKscholars, to benefit the dependent children of the company’s employees as they pursue college degrees. In its initial year the GKscholars program will award up to 10 scholarships to students attending college in the 2016-2017 school year. The GKscholars program will be funded by donations from G&K’s employees through the company’s GKgives charitable giving program, along with contributions from the G&K Services Foundation.

“I’m excited to introduce GKscholars, a great new program to help our employees and their families,” said Douglas A. Milroy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “It’s especially gratifying that this program will largely be funded through the generosity of G&K’s employees, coming together to help the children of our co-workers advance their education.”

G&K’s employees and the G&K Services Foundation have a long history of generosity. The Foundation’s mission is “Building Communities that Work”, supporting charitable organizations that help meet the basic human and educational needs of people in the communities where G&K does business.
